This review discusses fly and other models of cohesinopathies, which include Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and Roberts Syndrome.

Horsfield JA, Print CG, Mönnich M. Diverse developmental disorders from the one ring: distinct molecular pathways underlie the cohesinopathies. Front Genet. 2012;3:171. PubMed PMID: 22988450.

Among the genes discussed is Nipped-B, the fly ortholog of the human gene associated with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. Table 1 of the review lists additional genes relevant to cohesinopathies.
